extradited to sweden on sex crimes allegations appealing the ruling julian assange says the case is simply a pretext to get him to the u.s. for a quick trial. right america has its wings clipped with the last flight over discovering the shuttles are to be decommissioned soon and obama's new space program astronauts will have to rely on a russian spacecraft to take them into the. world with us spiraling middle east and rest to draining wars in afghanistan and they were off and an ongoing financial slump american policymakers are facing a glut of pressing problems he spoke to brant scowcroft former u.s. national security advisor about the challenges ahead for the country that discussion is coming your way next. mr scowcroft thank you very much for joining all t. you belong to the school of foreign policy realists that's what they say for they
10:32 am
say and you're republican with a career stretching across five american express ministrations so we'd like to discuss several foreign policy issues with you and your view what are the consequences for the u.s. middle east policy after the toppling of mubarak in egypt and ben ali in tunisia you know one is always caught off guard by revolutions. because there are a surprise if there were a surprise to president ben ali and to president mubarak it's hardly unusual or be a surprise to the united states. the instabilities in the region are of course obvious and have been for a long time the question is can they be handled can they be dealt with in any thought for a sensible way or does it have to involve. unrest and violence
10:33 am
and i think. we have to wait and see so far the egyptian crisis has been managed for i think quite route to actually armies behaved i think very well leave their repressing their demonstrations nor encouraging. its changes coming to the region but that was that was inevitable as the old leaders. passed from the scene so i think we need to be careful but not to mistake fundamentally fundamentally our policy should change in our policy is the development of open societies cooperativeness and progression of development for all the countries of the region and it's always been part of iraq president obama has started withdrawing troops from iraq once all the forces including security personnel leave the country in your view is there
10:34 am
a danger of iraq slipping back into the civil war i think iraq is in or is in approved per carry a state there is still in fact forming a government and months after an election to do so there are sharp divisions inside the country. and it's hard to say exactly how they will develop i would be more comfortable. with a somewhat longer american presence so that they would be more inclined to solve their problems by discourse rather than strength but we'll have to wait and see but you don't think that. the danger is there oh i think the danger is there i think there are still still many forces tending to pull the country aside indeed one of the reasons for the strength of the
10:35 am
dictatorship was to hold the country together but i am hopeful that people will see the benefits of compromising their differences rather than insist upon them and destroying the state do you think that the nato mission in afghanistan is doomed just like the britons failed in the nineteenth century in the soviet union just two years ago. no i don't think so because i think we are the united states is there for a different reason which is not to control afghanistan but to make sure that al-qaeda or other terrorist bad don't use afghanistan as a base from which to attack us you anybody else so yeah who are our goal is much more limited and i think they're for. one can have more optimism and one did it
10:36 am
at the previous occupants of afghanistan you yourself i think have been saying that the term war on terror. was compromised it has indeed been compromised how does that marry with the you know with the terrorism threat but it's not going anywhere well terrorism threat is one thing a war is another and terrorism is a technique of combat it is not you can't make war on a technique so. i think war on terrorism was designed to motivate people for a maximum effort care or is something that we all have to deal with and i'm going to have to for a while longer period of time it's in part a product of the modern age like television like radio people are now politicized
10:37 am
by issues that they didn't care about before because they didn't know about and so i think it's a long term struggle against extremists who want to destroy a civilization that they can't cope with it seems that there is no progress in stopping the iranian nuclear program in your view what are the chances that the united states may resort to the military option i think there is still the possibility to avoid a confrontation. i think iran is a case that relative related to the reason that i'm here and that is cooperation between the united states and russia are no whole nuclear fuel cycle. iran has every right. to have nuclear power but does not have the right to build nuclear weapons and i think.
10:38 am
the extent to which we can cooperate to induce iran to take the opportunities that are available that is nuclear fuel for russia return a nuclear fuel not insist on enriching it's only really. or doing things like that and i wouldn't rule out that. that we would be successful how much is you know is this the opinion shared in the united states i don't think i'm alone i am not sure but i don't think there's any eagerness. to deal with iran by force and i think the extent the increasing degree of cooperation between the united states and russia on this issue will have a big impact. on iran and what it decides to do but there is also quite strong
10:39 am
a mood within the government of israel and sort of you know they support and i time on iran well israel has what it considers an existential problem with iran but i think if we can deal with the nuclear problem. then israel will be reassured by that what is your assessment on has the recent with russia and asked by the obama administration and years ago brought any serious results if not what could be the reasons i was a little disappointed for a year or so i am now encouraged i think now that we are beginning on a much more positive course. both sides have ratified the new start treaty and that is. a major step forward in terms of renewing a cooperative since the. nuclear cooperation agreement along twenty three agreement
10:40 am
as we call it is now in force and i think the the the warmth between the two and the progress we've made together with respect to iran for example and i think even on afghanistan there is a sense that we pull the we have a common problem there common of the export of the export of her one so on those things. are leading and i feel good about the reset button now why were you disappointed then did you feel that those two little happening yes yes i thought that i thought the language of reset was good but but there didn't seem to be much follow through for a time and now it just took time to catch more but now i feel very good about since you've already mentioned start what is its political impact on the u.s. russian relations i think what it really does is that is continue
10:41 am
the framework that we've built up really over fifty years of how to talk and how to deal. with the military nuclear issues that if it continues that process and now we can look at ways we still possess over ninety percent of the world's nuclear weapons so we need to work together to ensure that those weapons are never never need be used and that is to increase the stability of the nuclear about us so whatever the problem between us there is no incentive. to use and when i think now the way is clear for us to sit down and have that kind of discussion there's still there's so many nuclear weapons out there but it's not just a matter of numbers it's doing the kinds of things that ensure that those weapons are never going to be used and that take that'll take a lot more discussion goshi thoughtfulness on both sides. but i'm sure we can make
10:42 am
